Does anyone know if the Joola Toni Hold Antitop 2.5 version plays significantly different than the 1.5 version?

Thinking about putting it on a R*1 with Tango 1.8 on the forehand. Would that be legal with the 2.5 on the backhand? It would be an extremely thick setup.

I've been trying a lot of different antis lately.

The Joola Toni Hold Anti-Topspin isn't very frictionless at all and the sponge is very hard and slow. It's very consistent and reliable, but very easy to hit back unless you give a quick little wrist movement at impact (then only slightly less easy to hit back).

The Neubauer antis are probably the most frictionless, but are too fast. I found it difficult to keep hard-hit returns on the table. Maybe there will be some good tips on the video.

The Butterfly Super-Anti and Super-Anti Special are probably the second most frictionless. Both have the same topsheet and a different sponge. The "Special" sponge is heavier and a little slower.

I'd put Juic Neo Anti and Yasaka Anti Power in the same group. They're a little more grippy and can impart a little more spin. They have very soft sponges are are a little more offensive.

The Hallmark Mirage is slow and offers little reverse-spin. Unfortunately, I was expecting something like Super Block and it came apart when I ripped it off the blade in disgust. Looking back I really didn't evaluate it on its merits as an anti, but solely as a Super Block replacement, in which it was a dismal failure. I wonder if it would still be any good if I glued it back together?

There are still a few more antis on my list to try, especially the Nittaku Best Anti, which I have high hopes for.

Also of interest is the Toni Hold Anti Topspin New 40 (OX version !!?) and maybe the Stiga Energy Absorber, although the Stiga is supposed to be quite heavy, which I don't like.

From what I've tried so far, I like the Butterfly antis the best by quite a large margin.

Despite the fact that they sell it as OX, using inverted rubbers OX is actually illegal.

Use a glue sheet between your Mirage sponge & topsheet- this works very well.

Interesting that the very best (for frictionless style) anti at the moment is Butterfly's SA Special 1.5mm, which has been around for 25? years.

Toni Hold later added a thin pad underneath to satisfy the sponge rule, but says "it still plays like ox" so they market it as ox. Their site has been down lately. I hope they're still in business.

Is anyone still selling Super Anti Special with 1.5 sponge? Butterflyonline.com only sells it in 1.9 now.

can anyone compare the butterfly super anti and yasaka anti power?

Well thinking on ejing a little more with anti, these 2 i can get, easily.

...Also delving, into the toni hold as well but i guess the price will be more and there are very few places here in Sydney i can get it without ordering online (pinkie:).

But for me I guess i am loving how anti plays and I dont think ill return back to pimples.

Super Anti is slick, slow, good reverse spin, good hitting, great control.

Anti Power can put spin on the ball, considered an "attacking anti" although it's still slow. Good hitting, good counterhitting, good control, like a faster Juic Neo Anti.

Joola Toni Hold is similar to Mirage, maybe the slowest of all. Incredible control. Very fun to use, but I think the two above are more dangerous.

thanks mynamenotbob,
You truely do know your stuff! Ill probably end up getting the super anti then.
I did check out the toni hold last night and you are right it almost same speed if not a tad slower than the Mirage.

(lol) TT companies have made a small fortune off me because of the pip ban. I've tried just about all the antis except Tibhar Ellen Defense, which has been out of stock at Paddle Palace for weeks. The two I think I prefer are Super Anti and Nittaku Best Anti. I'm also keeping a pip setup and a double-inverted setup in my bag for certain types of opponents.

Weird stuff (original, red, max). Topsheet is ban-my-racket pink in color, kind of eraser-like.. not translucent, which I guess is how they can get away with putting a black sponge underneath it? Cost over $50 US and by appearance you would think it it took less than a tenth of that to produce it. Little reversal, unimpressive control, heavy. Was not impressed.

Teessports sell butterfly superanti in 1.5mm

The 2.5 Joola Toni Hold is very thick. I use the 1.5 with the 2.5 I feel like I get no feedback from or feeling from the rubber. I agree it is a relatively hard and slow sponge with a somewhat grippy top sheet (not so it would react to spin though).

The Ellen Defense hits well. It's a little quicker than both Joola toni hold and Butterfly super anti. Easier to hit with than both, Closer to super anti in its spin characteristics (in red). However, the black ellen defense is quite spinny for an anti. For me the ellen is probably the best hitting anti that still plays like an anti, o.k to defend with and hit (I'm not a fan of the neo anti, I don't like the soft sponge it grips too much against heavy incoming loops).

Toni Hold new 40 that they claim has a sponge but is marketed as 0x as was correctly indicated earlier, is hard to hit with in 0x (it just wants to dive into the net and hits more like a long pimple than an anti). The sponge version is way too quick. In 0x the top sheet is slick, probably slicker than super anti good for blocking though the reversal is nothing like a long pimple. As usual the black is spinnier than red and less effective for blocking. Speed wise it is a little quicker than joola toni hold 1.5 and possibly just quicker than the super anti. It is controllable for pace when defending. The hit is a little quicker (maybe with the thin sponge it penetrates to the blade on haerder impacts)
